    My Trip Report

    Driving to Temecula for business so I decided to go to pechunga hotel and casino to golf and play small. I refuse to give these Indian casinos large action as you get nothing for your money. The golf was incredible today in 25 mph winds. My first time here and it is really nice but no Wynn or really any hotel in vegas. Pictures coming if you are interested. Internet on my phone isn't working to well.

    That is my home casino! You have a few more casino options just on the other side of the mountain (Pala, Harrah's, Valley View, and a tent casino called Pauma)...Pechanga is the biggest of them all. You should take a picture of the craps and roullette table for the board...lol. btw, supposedly, the card craps favors the dark side more than dice...don't know why, but that is what many have told me.

Played for a total of 1 1/2 hours.avg bet 100 as they don't count odds. 1000 points an hour. On my way to golf this morning. uploadfromtaptalk1408457246572.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1408457261058.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1408457273232.jpg

    For Pechanga at least, "many people" are wrong then. The probabilities are exactly like dice with their procedure. Just craps ploppies being ploppies I guess.

    Now that being said, some California casinos deal out of a shoe instead (to speed up the game I guess). Now those probabilities will change thanks to card removal, and because of that, you should bet the don't.

    I still wonder why California came up with this rule in the first place. I was addicted to online poker for years, but they apparently think that cards are safer than allowing full-blown craps to the public.

    Yup...craps and roullette in Cali is all played with cards. In roullette, the wheel has a bunch of slots and a card is placed in each slot. A ball in spun, as in rwgular roullette, and the corresponding card that the ball lands on is then revealed. Cards are numbered 1-36, plus 0 and 00.

    Here is a strategy for card craps, though I have never tried it.

    Edit: actually, i do not believe they use a ball in card roullette.

    Do all their Bac tables have the Dragon bet? I never looked at the table in HL. I know all the tables in the asian pit are Dragon tables.

    Nope. Its in our states constitution, which dates back to 1849...when miners ran gaming, outlawing any game involving outcome of dice or balls. (cards are A-OK)
    99% of the card craps/roulette games are basically the same, just with a small element of cards...except like 3 casinos that absolutely use NO dice.
